Some days you feel like getting away...

Or you are just one of those crazy hermits anyway...either way these customizable dwellings may be perfect for you! Arvesund, a swedish company, has come up with quite an interesting concept in designing homes and barns that fit in well with the surrounding landscape. They can be as rustic or contemporary as you desire. 

for this and many other options in low footprint dwellings check out designboom

Always wanted a treehouse, but felt too grown up?

Not, anymore! Alongside a hotel retreat focused around conservation, Our Planet Retreats possesses the free spirit sphere. This pod is one of the options fitting in amongst the trees in a more organic form than others. For more information and other treehouses go here

in need of small appliances?

Recently, one of my friends came across this site. These remind me of other appliances that have come out in the past, but were discontinued shortly after. Maybe this is a second wave of well-designed, well-accepted appliances. Hopefully they are constructed and used with more of a sense of permanence than they are initially perceived as having.
